EU Citizens Allowed To Stay In UK Even If No Deal Brexit

Europeans will be granted the right to stay in the UK if there is a no-deal Brexit under a unilateral act by the government.

Theresa May will take the “moral high ground” and allow EU migrants to continue to access the NHS and claim benefits, because the rest of her government’s contingency plans for an acrimonious departure from the bloc rely “on the availability of existing labour”.

The offer would apply regardless of whether British migrants in European countries are granted the same rights by the EU.

Rightly so, as the UK economy would grind to a halt if 3 million Europeans were kicked out!
